If I could lead the wanderers to the path,
everyone would have a place to stand.
If I could will grip to the limp,
each one of us could hold anotherís hand.
If I could silence the maniacal voices in restless heads,
the tired could finally go to bed.
If my shoulders could carry a little more weight,
the late flights would go on their way.
If I could sing all of the iron warriors to eternal sleep,
the whole world would be free.
If I were to announce this to the world as my mission,
I might receive a lot of recognition.
But I would rather travel in obscurity
where the lost can find me.

The present and future are not about who you were in the past-rather, they are about who you are and who you will become.

What you are is beautiful..."

Life surprises you! And I'm talking about the good stuff, because a bad surprise is not a surprise at all, it is just shock and horror. All of these good surprises, they are rewards, and the things that happen to remind you that you matter and that you should make yourself faithful so that you can be deserving of all of life's good surprises. Every wonderful surprise in life is a chance to flourish, so grab life by the horns-but don't ride, steer instead: life's horns are life's joystick. You can handle it, because your life's horns are made especially for you. If you don't give up, all of this will hold true and life will continue to surprise you.

I would rather travel in obscurity
Hi Aubri. Guess who's back?

Nice sentiment but the last line kind of confuses me. Wouldn't it make more sense to make yourself known so that the lost can find you? Hiding in obscurity suggests not wanting to help.

Why not travel with humility?

Welcome back!
Good point. Maybe I should have said "But I would rather travel in the world of obscurity". I've been lost before, and being lost made me feel obscure even when I was around a lot of people.

It's good to see you back here! I hope to read more of your work soon!

Not what I mean
I meant perhaps making yourself known in your travels so others may find you. Normally those traveling in obscurity do so because they don't want to be bothered. That or they're just emo kids who listen to today's so-called goth music and cut themselves.
